Allergy Fun Fact

A quick Google search reveals: "Females were also 2.6 times more likely than males to report multiple drug allergies," There have also been previous reports of studies that found female sex to be a risk factor for adverse drug reactions in general."   SOURCE: Annals of Allergy, Asthma, and Immunology, July 2007.  [I am leaving this one alone]
